A wonderful restaurant just walk away from embarc. It should be what their restaurant is like! Walking into the lobby of the hotel is beautiful and seeing zihua at night with a thousand sparkling lights is a wonderful View. Ask the server for the special drink they are made fresh not a mix and wonderful! A great evening was had by all...

Been there two nights ago. Mr Venustiano kindly served us. It is one of the best places i have been in Mexico. The view is phenomenal. And i ate the most delicious fish, baked. It was a Ronco.

Request a table on the lower terrace, nearest the water, for an unobstructed view of the bay.
Arrive a bit early to enjoy a beautiful sunset.
The atmosphere is spectacular, service is high end, the food is excellent, and prices are definitely reasonable for the experience.
You will certainly want to wait to visit Mar y Cielo until the region's very serious crime spike has dissipated : currently all of the state of Guerrero, now including Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, has been deemed unsafe to visit by the US Department of State.

Dear MLLCLA,
Thank you very much for your comments about your recent visit to our Mar Y Cielo Restaurant.
We are pleased to read that you enjoyed our spectacular atmosphere, high-end service, excellent food.
Regarding the travel warning from the US State Department not to travel to Zihuatanejo, we believe that by giving you a clearer vision of facts based on reality you may then have a different perspective.
- The most important issue is that Zihuatanejo is fortunately far away from Guerrero’s area of insecurity.
- We have never witnessed any incident concerning visitors.

Hoping that this information will reassure you and hope you will visit us again in a near future.

Respectfully,

Ana Maria Frias

The sea bass was so fantastic, it melted in my mouth! The food was most definitely on par with the other top restaurants, and a little less expensive. The service was outstanding! It was a set menu, and I recommend having whatever your server recommends as the catch of the day.

This restaurant is located at La Casa Que Canta. Perched on a cliff, it has sweeping views of the ocean and the shoreline- awesome sunset. We had breakfast and dinner here while staying at the hotel. The breakfast menu has a wide range of offerings- from local specialities to American breakfast. Our breakfast favorites were local dishes- various versions of eggs, chorizo, jamon, dried beef, beans and flavorful sauces.
Bread and pastries are served warm with homemade pineapple and strawberry jams.
Their dinner menu varies nightly. There is a full bar as well. Really liked the tamarind margarita and guanabana margarita as well as the shots of mezcal.
For dinner, we enjoyed various types of tamales and whole fish (red snapper, sea bass and baby barracuda) cooked different ways. All foods are made to order. Ingredients are fresh. Warm bread, breadsticks and plantain chips are served with dinner along with a salsa prepared table side. Salsa heat is adjusted to your liking. Dessert favorites were home made goat ice cream and chocolate lava cake.
Service is friendly, relaxed and attentive. Staff are very patient and accomodating. They take time to explain dishes and answer questions. And do their best to satisfy requests. They refill waters when needed and clear dishes promptly without being intrusive. The dining area is open air, clean and well maintained. We felt at home in this restaurant. Venustiuno and the rest of the staff made us feel welcome. This is the place to visit if you're looking for a great dining experience- food, service, views were excellent!
